Sunday Stills: Flowers/Wildflowers

This was an easy challenge here in the Pacific Northwest. The flowers are popping out all over. We had some unusually early spring-like days followed by a return to our infamous rains -- which apparently worked wonders for the flora.

So...these are some the shots I took this week:

Azalea
Iris (kind of a funky angle)
Iris
Painterly Iris (first Photo Shop edits)

The following photos were taken about a month ago:

Rhododendron
Rhodie
Pink Dogwood

To see how others met the challenge, visit Sunday Stills.

Gosh these are all just lovely. I do really like the color of the Rhodie. They are mostly lavender/fushia around here. :)
